Session Six: Transformational Moments: How Master Clinicians Thing, Talk, and Listen When Facing the Most Challenging of Clinical Tasks
This symposium will offer a variety of innovative strategies and interviewing techniques for transforming many of the most problematic clinical challenges encountered in everyday care. The techniques described are immediately applicable to therapists in all clinical settings from community mental health centers, college counseling centers and private practices to emergency departments and inpatient units.
Traditionally daunting clinical tasks such as creating hope in the hopeless, rapidly and sensitively engaging clients with borderline and/or narcissistic disorders, exploring incest and domestic violence, unstalling stalled treatment planning, eliciting hidden suicidal ideation, uncovering dangerous psychotic process, and performing a sensitive DSM-5-TR differential diagnosis, as well as avoiding our own burn-out will be explored. Throughout the week Dr. Shea will pull upon a combination of vibrant didactics, compelling videos, and the lens of the “human matrix”, a philosophical concept that adds consistency, integration, and a sense of meaningful direction to transforming challenging everyday clinical conundrums.
